    As usual, Jamal Igle's stuff here is top notch. For a story so charged with psychological overtones of grief and insecurity, you need an artist who can convey character's emotions via their expressions and body language. Igle can do that so unbelievably well. That half-smile on the splash page speaks volumes. And BizarroGirl is just a frightening monster. Very nice all around! Read Full Review

    The main story was great, the back stories are heating up, and I for one can't wait for the upcoming issues. Read Full Review

    "Okay, I gotta admit, I missed this," Supergirl thinks to herself once she's back in the outfit. The feeling's mutual, here. Gates' run on "Supergirl" has been constantly put on hold for other crossovers and events, and it's a pleasure to see what appears to be his chance to finally go forward without interruptions. It's about time. Read Full Review

    Supergirl #54 is not inherently a bad issue, its just an issue that should be considerably better than it really is. Sterling Gates and Jamal Igle do showcase a lot of what has made this series so great under their watch, but the repeated plot elements, awkward anatomy, and poor coloring drag this issue down further than the high points can really bring it up from. With Kara back into action at the end of this issue (well, sort of, but I won't spoil it for you), I'm hoping next issue will be a step back to form for this title. Read Full Review
